The today’s noises.
The today’s noises.

we gradually get familiar with such noises and generalize them. we have begun to forget the meanings of incendiary actions that those noises possess. This is made as a part of a project which is designed to reconstitute the today’s noises. Reconstitute actual noises(drilling, prodding and tapping noise) and actual actions causing the noises(drilling, prodding and tapping action) in forms of onomatopoeia called characters(폭/푹,콕/쿡,톡/툭) and fabricated actions(cutting and folding actions using papers). The intention was to listen carefully to the meanings immanent in today’s noises by reconstituting the actions of the noises through typographies.
